Caron Cake Crochet Blanket Pattern

Hey everyone!

In my last post, I talked about my review of the Caron Cake yarn. This yarn has definitely made a name for itself in the yarn community, to the point where some Michaels stores are running out faster than they can put these on the shelf. After picking up a couple to start with, I decided to make my very own crochet pattern. Since I love making baby blankets, I thought it was very fitting to make a blanket using these Caron Cakes.

caron-cake-bumbleberrybumbleberry-caron-cakeI was looking through my Crochet Stitch Dictionary book, which I have a review on, to help me decide which stitch to use. I decided to go with the V-stitch. I found this stitch to be very pretty, but very simple. I ended up using 3 Caron Cakes in the colorway Bumbleberry. The finished baby blanket measures to be a total of 43” x 36”.

If you are interested in making this baby blanket, please see below for the free pattern.

    Hi, this is my first time I’ve come across you online! You’re amazing by the way!! I was desperate to find a blanket done in Caron Cakes but just couldn’t find much online, until I found yours! The one you made is absolutely beautiful and I want to make my niece the same blanket in bumbleberry as well. I have 9 skeins of it and I’m hoping that’ll be enough. If not, I’ll just have to get more. I want it to be roughly the size of a twin bed (35″x75″).
    My question is this, I am fairly new to crochet and reading patterns seem to give me the most trouble. ROW 1 of your instructions is easy enough to figure out. It’s ROW 2 that has me reading and rereading it, and still not getting it. I’m so bummed bc I really want to give my niece this for Christmas. I was hoping that maybe (fingers and toes crossed) you could break down ROW 2 and make it a bit more simplified for me. Hope you’re not thinking that I’m pathetic, I’m sorry if that’s the case. I have to improve on pattern reading. That’s my challenge for the New Year! This blanket is beautiful!! I’m in love! Hoping for a little help💜 Thanks for anything you could possibly do to help! It would be so very appreciated! If you’re unable to, no problem. I thought; no harm in asking right!
    Thank You,
    Stacey H

      Hi Stacey! First of all, thank you so much for the positive and wonderful comment! It really means a lot to me. I will respond more in depth to your question tomorrow. It’s getting late and I really should be getting to bed as I have work in the morning. I really hope I can help you make sense of this pattern. Don’t feel bad as we have all been there. I struggle to read patterns sometimes too and I’ve been crocheting for about 11 years now! Again, I will respond more in depth tomorrow. I just didn’t want you to think I was ignoring you.

      Hi again Stacey!
      Thanks again for stumbling upon my blanket pattern. I’m glad you love it! Considering the amount of Caron Cakes you have, you should have enough to make a twin sized blanket. I used 3 skeins for mine and it ended up being 43” L x36” W. You would basically chain the same amount that I did to get the width and just continue making more rows until you get close to your desired length. To answer your question, to begin Row 2, the chain 3 counts as your first stitch. You skip this stitch and the first double crochet of that row. You would double crochet twice in the space between the two double crochets from the previous row. Once you do this, the stitches will open and look like a V. You do this all the way down to the end of the row. When you get to the end, you want to skip one stitch and then double crochet once in the top of the turning chain 3. Chain 3 and turn your work. You will continue this pattern until you reached your desired length. I hope this helps clear things up for you. If you need any further help, please don’t hesitate to ask. I’m always happy to help a fellow crocheter out. Good luck! ~Amanda
